Students from North America and abroad join distinguished researchers at the Sigma Xi Annual Meeting & International Research Conference for a celebration of research accomplishments.
Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to present their research conclusions (or preliminary findings from ongoing research), participate in mentoring and networking activities, panel discussions, and other events. Commemorative medals will be presented for outstanding research presentations. Sigma Xi members and non-members are invited to participate in the conference.
Students present research to be evaluated by professional researchers in: Behavioral Sciences, Biochemistry, Cellular & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Geo-Sciences, Math & Computer Science, Physics & Astronomy, Physiology & Immunology and Interdisciplinary Research.
What others are saying about participating in the Sigma Xi Student Research Conference...
An amazing experience- personally and professionally.
I learned a lot about networking, presenting research
and got to explore a completely new city.
I even got a gold medal!
The conference was an amazing opportunity for
networking with recruiters and other student researchers.
I especially appreciated the chance to meet
excellent student researchers from outside my discipline.
I loved that fact that people were genuinely
interested in my research. The interaction with other
student researchers was the best part as they will be
my future colleagues, competitors, and collaborators.
It was a very rewarding experience, and I learned
a lot that can be applied to future presentations
This was an awesome conference. I met a lot of great
people and even came away with a fancy medal.
I had a wonderful time at the Conference. I met
researchers from a variety of fields in addition to my
own and have been in contact with them since the conference.
I was glad to have an opportunity to present my research to
a wide audience and found the entire experience to be very
beneficial to my development as a scientist.
